There is, you see, a possible TV career in Hildegarde's immediate future. And she's looking forward to doing| ^^ the comm< herself — _„ a terrific sales-1 woman" - but thinks that ahe has a reputationj for things elegant! that she must! maintain.

After viewing both parts i in advance, I, urge everyone to watch it and -see how television can tell a complex story dramatically and without cant. No Professional Actors There are no professional actors in "The Addicted." There are' no world-renowned authorities on the subject of drugs intoning big generalities off a.teleprompter. Its people, .most of them, are , addicts themselves, caught in 'the Personal hell of those who have turned their-backs on the reality of living in quest of the "bang" "to be found in "junk." •>.", . The first part presents the story of ,ari : actual addict, "Fred,'-' a young New Yorker of economically underprivileged background, as • 'told, by the people; who know him '•— his mother, .fellow workers, those who tried to help him at Overside Hospital- here, and , members. of Addicts Anonymous. Tells Own Story Finally the young man himself .tells bow. he feels as he leaves for six months in prison: "I didn't want to use drugs , . , I need somebody. Sure, it's too big for me • to handle alone. A drug addict needs somebody to hold onto, He's not strong enqugn to do it alone," The second part of "The Addicted" is even more powerfully dramatic than the first as it examines the question of whether an addict is a criminal, as defined by current law r- or « patient, as defined by many physicians. Cameras Capture Story Wasserman's cameras have captured some stunning moments in the nighttime ward of the Tombs Prison to New York where men are fighting the agonizing withdrawal symptoms suffered by «11 who try to "kick the'habft," Another gripping sequence |§ a Wro of an addict buying a reefer . and bis arrest by watching police.
